Article Pixel

SILENCE! The Musical (lyrics & music by Jon Kaplan & Al Kaplan and book by Hunter Bell) is being produced by Standing Room Only Productions at Obsidian Theater (www.obsidiantheater.org). With direction by Chris Patton, music direction by Eduardo Guzman, choreography by Eric Dano and assistant direction and stage management by Lauren Hainley, the production begins today, June 9, and continues through June 25, 2016.

The award-winning SILENCE! The Musical is a hilarious 'unauthorized' parody of the 1991 Academy Award winning film, "The Silence of the Lamb". Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in order to catch the serial killer known as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock , Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. This laugh-out-loud and very-naughty satire features a singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin. Even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he'd like to lead someday outside the prison walls.

The cast of SILENCE! The Musical features Rachel Landon as Clarice, Chris Gibson as Hannibal Lecter, Bryan Kaplun as Buffalo Bill, Chaney Moore as Catherine Martin/Senator Martin/Ensemble, Tom Stell as Crawford/Papa Starling/Ensemble, Kiefer Slaton as Dr. Chilton/Ensemble, Maryann Williams as Ardelia/Ensemble, Taelon J. Stonecipher as Miggs/Ensemble, and Heather Buzonas as Doyle/Ensemble.

Tickets are $37.50, $32.50 for seniors/students and $27.59 for groups of 6 or more - and can be purchased at www.sro-productions. For more information call 713-300-2358 or email sro@sro-productions.com.

SILENCE! The Musical contains adult language and subject matter and is not appropriate for children. The original 'Silence of the Lambs' movie is gruesome and the musical is no different. Not only are violent acts performed in the stage version, the actors also sing about them. The many songs feature lyrics about cutting up victims, genital odors, bodily fluids, animal abuse and many other raunchy topic.
